Marley's mom says: Marley was born on June 26, 2006, in a litter of 11! He was 14 pounds the day we brought him home (nine weeks to the day). He's a very smart puppy and already doing very well in his obedience classes. He's also a big suck and loves attention of any kind. He chews like crazy and loves eating -- at the moment he goes through more than ten pounds of kibble a week! He also sleeps sprawled out on his back sometimes, which is pretty funny. He's already got the instincts of a good guard dog. He's usually pretty quiet but almost always barks if he sees or hears seagulls, geese, or people in the park behind the fence of our backyard.
